If You Are Buying A Small Flat

If You Are Buying A Small Flat

1- Talking to my friendly local crime prevention officer (contact your police station for details), he came up with the following points to bear in mind if you own your own property (and even if you don’t): Eighty per cent of burglaries are “opportunist”- That is committed by teenagers absconding from school, pr someone just grabbing an easy chance. They prowl the streets looking for a soft target, and what in not easy they will pass by. So the idea is to make your house at least look as thought it is as secure as Fort Knox.

2- Basements and attics are the most vulnerable points of entry-Basements can be entered without danger to life and limb and without being overlooked. Attics can be reached via the roof. This is a real changer if scaffolding is erected outside neighboring house.

3- It is pointless fitting your door with strong locks if the frame is weak. You need a solid hardwood frame, possibly with steel reinforcement, and a solid door. A registered key is also a good idea. These are available from good companty and must be signed for. “Deadlocks,” which will not move unless you turn the key, are also worth having. Some locks become deadlocks if you turn the key twice.

4- An official-looking burglar alarm box on the front of the house is better than nothing, even if it does nothing. A burglar alarm wired for sound in obviously more expensive.

5- You could consider placing decorative iron garilles on your windows, though these, too can be expensive to install.

6- You should definitely have a chain on the door. Alternatively, (or as well) fix a spy hole so you can see who is there without opening the door. This is not difficult-your local hardware store will advise-and is money well spent.

7- Window lock can be useful if you live on the ground floor or on a first floor which is easily accessible to burglars.

8- Automatic lights switching on and off at certain time are also worthwhile installing. You can buy plug-in switches from an electrical appliances shop.

9- A dog? Certainly, but he will sometimes go cut with you, leaving your home unprotected.

10- Neighborhood watch is a must, as well as a sticker saying your property is a sticker saying your property is ‘marked”(that is marked with invisible ink so, in theory items can be traced). The point of Neighborhood Watch is than it warns the burglar that here is a street full of nosey old parkers and he would be better off elsewhere-so make sure he can see the sticker. It also alerts you, by means of newsletters etc, to potential dangers in the area.

Decorate Your Apartment in a Fancy Style

You want to decorate your apartment, but have a narrow & limited budget, and then you have two options:

a) Select cheap and average items for decoration.

b) Decorate your apartment with luxurious and high priced items and don’t worry about the budget. Actually you want to decorate it so you don’t bother about the cost.

The bed sheets play a vital role in your apartment. They are multipurpose, because you may convert them to table cloths or curtains.

The color is not a disputed factor; you may obtain any color from market. There is an option for you that you choose a white sheet and obtain any color or pattern. That comes in low cost.

When you go to market it becomes a difficult task for you to make a choice for furniture, bed or utensils. On these moments you go to such stores which give heavy discount to the customers.

If you don’t find the items according to your choice on discount stores, then you have to see towards the flea markets. They sell the items on amazingly low price. If you buy them you have nothing to do, but to polish them & refinish them. You will find a treasure at your door.

The newspaper may help you in this matter. When you see any advertisement you become exited that the accessories are selling at very low price. Actually the advertised things are unwanted by the seller or he has not enough space to accommodate it.

Surely you have a desire to decorate the apartment in an artistic manner, for this you are no need to go to a museum. Take some artificial flowers and put them on walls or hang them from roof. To enhance the beauty of your living rooms, you may put them in vase.
